Tony Stark, recently raised to CEO of his late father's multinational corporation Stark Industries, has refused all contact with his business partner Obadiah Stane for more than three days. Replacing the personal assistant who quit only a few days prior, Stane sends someone from his own staff to take over - a no-nonsense, capable, bright young redhead by the name of Virginia Potts who is sure she knows everything she needs to about the company's resident problem child.
But what she finds on her arrival quickly disabuses her of anything she had ever known about Tony Stark, leaving only her job description to guide her. What's left after that? Doing her job - but with a little bit of magic from an unexpected source, something more is forged.
